Leaders must continually elevate their mindsets and behaviors to successfully navigate and thrive in today’s VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) world. Concurrently, organizations consider who they select to lead and how they prepare leaders.
Outstanding leadership today looks different than it did even a few years ago. For example, less than 4% of US executives operate at the Strategist level of Leadership Maturity, as referenced in the HBR article Seven Transformations of Leadership. Yet, this is the level that researchers believe is the most effective for leading an organization.
Innovative Leadership is an evidence-based framework that goes beyond mass-marketed leadership, combining the six elements of “self” to identify where individuals are, how they are best leveraged, and how they can grow. In addition, elite leaders use it to evolve themselves into Strategists and understand their teams’ nature and the overall organization.
Using all elements of Innovative Leadership in unique combinations, Innovative Leaders exhibit:
- Strategic leadership, inspiring individual goals and organizational vision and culture,
- Tactical leadership, influencing individual actions and organizational systems, and
- Integrated leadership, aligning the critical dimensions of goals, actions, culture, and systems.
Our programs are not a set of activity checklists, one-off skill-building events, or years-long therapy sessions – they teach executives and teams how to evolve their mindsets and behaviors to effectively lead themselves and their organizations through change, and complexity, and build the sophistication of their leadership over time.
We draw on proven research and strategies to design the best approach for each client. The result? Case after case of successful, sustainable change, increasing leadership capability and leadership legacy through lasting results.
Concurrently, Organizations need to redefine how leaders and organizations create value and accomplish their work. This rethinking involves updating their business operating models, leadership competencies, job designs, reporting structures, and succession planning. They must create systems that can evolve to thrive in an ever-changing world. ILI integrates organization design, succession planning, and leadership development with the analytical engine and talent DNA of Hire Direction to provide a data-driven approach to optimize your investment in talent to create an engaging workplace that delivers exceptional value.
